A Letter To My Baby Girl

Dear Monkey,

Finding out I was pregnant was one of the best days of my life, meeting you was the next and a year ago today was the scariest day of my life, as I laid with my feet in the stirrups, eyes filled with tears and body full of fear, I closed my eyes and prayed for you, for us.
I didn’t want nothing more than for you to survive. All that we went through those 8 previous months, how could I possibly ask for anything else. You are a fighter just like mommy and I am so proud of you for staying strong with me. Although you are tiny, you are mighty.

These past 12 months have been the happiest moments of my life. Watching as you grow, completing every milestone ahead of your age, rolling over at 4 months and taking your first step at 10 months. Every moment has been a dream come true.

Your laugh is my favorite sound and your smile melts my heart. You are the funniest and happiest baby I’ve ever seen and you fill my heart with nothing but joy. I just want you to know, although times may get tough, I am forever grateful to be your mom and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in this world. Baby girl you are my world.

You have given me hope and inspired me to do all that I do and more. Happy 1st Birthday baby girl! I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life guiding, loving and teaching you the way of life.

Mommy šŸ’ž
